Is this a Linksys nic? I only ask because the only occasion that *I* have heard of this becoming a problem (causing a kernel panic) had to do with a Linksys nic repeatedly putting out those messages over a period of time, with the box resetting itself some time after messages appeared. I feel its only fair to mention this. But if, as you say, that this is only the one message then I would imagine that there's less of a chance that a problem exists, but on the other hand, it wouldn't hurt to monitor for a few days.., Regards, Stacey > > Marco -- Stacey Roberts B.Sc (HONS) Computer Science Web: www.vickiandstacey.com To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
